Quilting…Badger football game

365 quilt blocks continue. So far I continue to keep up daily or sometimes two a day. They are getting more challenging and very interesting. This week I tried out some soup bowl wrap cozies. I found an easy link and did four of them. I did the 10 inch squares. They turned out ok. I am thinking I may make more for Christmas gifts this year to nieces, nephews and sister-in-law and others. Will need to get more special batting. They were fun to do. http://www.2littlehooligans.com/2012/05/04/fat-quarter-friday-guest-post-from-syzygy-of-me/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+2littlehooligans+%282+little+hooligans%29&utm_content=Google+Reader


Today we attended a Badger football game. It is always fun! We take a bus from a local German restaurant to avoid the traffic and they drop us off right there. Seats were great near the student section and the band. It was warm with the sun on us most of the game even though temps were in the upper 70’s. A win is always good. On the way home we stopped for broasted chicken in Manchester. Is was so good. There entire menu looks great with reasonable prices. We will be back.

Earlier this week we did a wine tasting at King Fisher Winery in Mount Horeb. These are also fun to do as you try out different wines. However our favorite is VonKlaus winery in Baraboo Wi.

We continue to settle into our condo. Electrician stopped by and found a broken wire causing outlet problems. Now my sewing outlets are corrected and no more extension cord for sewing. Now I can finish up setting up my sewing area. Whirlpool tub apparently was not plugged in and our new microwave arrived today. So tomorrow will get that put in and work on the cellular shades I ordered and get them up. 

It seems we are busy doing something or going somewhere. Tuesday we will see our niece play soccer in Ripon. This is her final year in college and she is a captain. We also want to get the kayak out again this week. Last week we even got out the pickleball set, marked a court with chalk and played for a few hours. We need to get back into pickleball shape before returning to Sunflower. Ripon has a court on Saturday mornings, but we have had things going on so hope to check it out soon.

We went to a Montello church this past Wednesday evening. Not the normal pastor but liked his sermon. We did see three deer on way home. So worried about deer at night with this drive. 

Fall is defiantly in the air, but nice to have some warm days. Looking forward to the changing colors of the leaves.

Happy quilting to all!
